AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli has saluted Samuel Chukwueze after he crowned a heart-warming display with his first goal for the Italian club in a UEFA Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.
Chukwueze’s first goal for AC Milan too cold 🥶— SMALLIE (@the_smallie) November 28, 2023
Chukwueze has struggled to find form at Milan since his summer transfer from Villarreal, but he showed glimpses of his class in Tuesday night’s 3-1 home loss to Dortmund.
He scored a super individual goal to draw Milan level by half time and overall he had a good game before he was subbed off late in the encounter.
It was a massive way to announce himself to the fans at the San Siro.
“I am happy; finally, he was decisive in the offensive phase. There are important signs of growth from him that will facilitate his integration,” Pioli commended.
Milan are bottom of Group F with five points from as many matches.
They will now need to win at Newcastle in a final group game and hope Dortmund stop PSG to have any chance of advancing to the round of 16.
